What personal qualities or strengths can you bring to the FLAVA Executive Board?
Some qualities that I can bring to the FLAVA Executive Board include being well-organized, determined, and humorous. I like to keep my work organized logically so it can be followed by any who would look at it. In anything I do, I am determined to do good work and help others. I think that there are very few situations that humor cannot enrich, so I bring my wit in my toolbox. Some strengths are that I handle stress well, consider potential issues before they happen, and anticipate the needs of my colleagues.
How does the current term fit in with your other responsibilities?
At this time, the only commitment that I have is my current teaching position and being the sponsor for our school’s Latin Club. Should I add any other commitments, I would thoughtfully consider how they would fit with my course load as well as my responsibilities for the FLAVA Executive Board.
Highlight any past experiences which would be useful in serving on the FLAVA Executive Board.
While in college, I served in a variety of roles for the Big Partner Little Partner (BPLP) program, Eta Sigma Phi Classics Honor Society, and the Gustavus Choir. For BPLP, my responsibilities included planning events, communicating between parents and school administration, and overseeing the coordinators and program as a whole. As Eta Sigma Phi President, I collaborated with professors, staff, and students to execute events, induct new members, lead the executive board, and advocate for classical languages. Finally, as Chaplain of the Gustavus Choir, I upheld the traditions and history of the choir, collaborated with the cabinet, and maintained its records for future board members. Within my time working at Riverbend High School, I have managed our World Languages Instagram account, facilitated events for world language students, assisted events for fine arts students, and attended many other activities. Due to teaching in a virtual, hybrid, and in-person format, I am technologically savvy and willing to work in unconventional ways for the benefit of those whom I am serving.
